17 You are considered a minor (someone who is not an adult) if you are under 18 years old. This is a legal status that lawmakers created for your protection. Validity may depend on compliance with the requirements of the place where the relationship was established.Just because a couple live together and “act” like they are married, unless they have the official contract / union by common law in their state, they are just 2 people living together for a really, really long time.Most people believe that if you live or co-habitate with a person for 7 years, you are as good as married or at least in the eyes of the state, you are married. A couple can use the same last name, call each other Mr. This marriage in a common law situation actually is known as an “informal marriage” or a “marriage by habit” and is a contractual joining of a couple.
Any action that would sexually arouse or stimulate the minor by the adult can and will result in any one of several criminal charges being lodged against the adult.
If you go to a Title X clinic, your appointment will be completely confidential, including your billing and your records.
Title X clinics provide sexual and reproductive health care to the public (girls, boys, teens and adults).
If you do not live in a state with common law marriage, it doesn’t matter how many years you live with your partner.
You may have a personal commitment to one another, love each other unequivocally, yet there is nothing legally binding.
